US Dollar Price Outlook: DXY Threatens Larger Recovery– Trade Targets

The US Dollar Index turned just ahead of uptrend support last week with the recent rebound threatening larger recovery in price. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the DXY charts heading into the close of the week.

Technical Outlook: In my latest US Dollar Weekly Price Outlook we noted that, “DXY turned from big resistance last week and IF this pullback is the start of a larger correction, look for resistance ahead of 97.87.” Price turned just ahead of confluence support last week with the rebound now trading within the 97.71/87 resistance zone- look for a reaction here.

Notes: A closer look at DXY price action shows the index trading within the confines of a broad ascending pitchfork formation extending off the June lows with the weekly opening-range now taking shape just below the confluence resistance at 97.87- a region defined by the 61.8% retracement of the 2017 decline and the 38.2% retracement of the August range.

A breach above this region would expose topside resistance objectives at 98.07/12 backed by the median-line / 61.8% retracement at 98.27- look for a reaction there IF reached. Ultimately a topside breach / close above the yearly high-day close at 98.40 would be needed to mark resumption of the broader up-trend. Support steady at the 97.21 with a break below 97.02 needed to suggest a more significant high was registered this month. Such a scenario would have us targeting initial support objectives at 96.52.
